    “Fabulous place, great position close to the lake, amazing views.”

    Unfortunately dishwasher was u/s with no warning (new one waiting in the garage) and lift wasn't working (would have helped one of our party and was advertised as being there). Ridiculous compulsory linen charge, which is quite excessive - we could have bought new linen from Briscoes for that. Also a compulsory cleaning charge was over the top, we felt very strange not leaving it immaculate after our stay, which we usually do. Both these items seem to be new Bachcare policy.

The property

Your family will love this classic Kiwi holiday home with absolute lake and mountain views! Take your breath away at Barne the Bentley. Turn away from the highways and holiday crowds and park on the driveway of this tranquil spot set amongst pretty lawns and landscaped gardens. Cross one quiet street and wander to the edge of New Zealand's largest lake.  The interior of your four-bedroom, two-bathroom, two-story holiday home is a classic wooden Lockwood style, designed to show-off the beautiful lake views. With an enticing deck area and a large backyard with garden table, there is ample space to chill.  Accommodating up to ten people with two queen beds, two double beds & a bunk bed, modern amenities include Wi-Fi, TV with Sky, heat pump. The kitchen is of a high standard, or else take cooking outside to the BBQ to be enjoyed alfresco under the veranda or umbrellas. Your accommodation offers full laundry facilities so everyone can be fresh on holiday! Superbly situated in the quiet suburb of Three Mile Bay and only 150m from the boat ramp. With up to 7m for boat or campervan parking, Barne the Bentley really has all you could ever ask for a lakeside retreat. Downtown Taupo is a ten-minute drive away, for the many shops, eateries and tourist attractions.  For a location hard to beat, drink in the views at Barne the Bentley and make some unforgettable memories!

All guests are encouraged to use the handrail when accessing the internal stairs as they are quite steep and narrow. 

For those with mobility concerns, please note an external lift has been added.

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.

About the location

Just an 8 minute drive around the lake from Taupo Central, Wharewaka is a great base for a relaxing or adventure-packed holiday. It's out of the hustle and bustle of the centre, but still close to many of the bucket-list activities Taupo has to offer such as going out on the lake, visiting Huka Falls or even making the trek along the Tongariro Crossing. All of our Wharewaka holiday homes are pre-inspected prior to your arrival and are ready for instant online booking.
